A SQL Server user client access license (CAL) authorizes one user to access SQL Server from any device when the server is deployed using the Client/Server mode. For example, an employee might access the server from a computer at work and another at home.
This donation provides one user CAL. Device CALs for licensing computers are also available.
For a summary of the available editions of SQL Server and licensing alternatives, see the Guide to SQL Server Editions and Licensing.
This license does not require media, license keys, or setup codes.
CALs, ECLs, and management licenses (MLs) offered through TechSoup are always for the currently offered version of the server software. However, these licenses can also be used with earlier versions of the server software.
